   Braxton-Bragg has hired stone industry veteran and big-hitter Shawn Rice to head up its outside sales efforts. Rice has more than 25 years of experience in strategy and sales with strong market and product development skills. Most recently, Rice directed na- tional sales at Lackmond Stone. Prior to Lackmond Stone, Rice made huge sales impacts at Granite City Tool and at GranQuartz, where he propelled sales during his tenure.
“At a time when some competitors are shrinking staff and relaxing goals, we are jumping into the recent global adversity head first, and we know that Rice is a key piece to our continued success in the market,” said Jeff Dykstra, Braxton-Bragg VP of Sales and Marketing. “Shawn is known in the industry as a catalyst for multi-million-dollar sales growth through national market expansion, devel- oping dynamic sales teams, and building high-level relationships with top rev- enue-producing clients. We know his experience is going to propel us to the next level.”
Rice will manage the rapidly-growing outside sales team, adding sales associates and vans in new regions, while work- ing hand-in-hand with the company’s inside sales and audit teams.
“It’s great to be work- ing with Braxton-Bragg because it is a very ag- gressive, well-managed, forward-thinking com- pany,” said Rice. “My goal is to facilitate the growth strategy, while enhancing current customer partner- ships, and building new ones.”
“Everyone in our indus- try knows Shaw is a force to be reckoned with, and his experience is a huge re- source assuring customer delight for our valued part- ners,” said Rick Stimac, Braxton-Bragg CEO. “He has been highly success- ful in providing fabrica- tors and shop owners with the hands-on support they need, when and where they need it. This skill-set is just what we need to win more of the market share with experienced local market presence.”
